Dying of thirst is the new reality.

Five years after the last drop of clean water disappeared, global societies collapsed and nuclear war shattered all hope of recovery. In a place now only a skeleton of its former self, survivors fight to avoid capture by the government. Forced to work in factories that produce the only drinking water available, those who go in, never come out.

Zach and Vivienne have lived as deserters since they were teenagers. Fighting amongst their own and scrounging for the necessities of life, they’ve learned to rely on each other in every way. Yet when tragedy strikes and the true objectives of the government facility are revealed, their world is ripped apart.

A fate once thought to hold their demise may be the sole answer to their survival. Who can they trust? Who can they believe?

In this life, it pays to be waterproof.

~ Review ~ 

In this book, the author tells of a world where the water supplies are diminished and survival becomes everything.  Over the 5 years since everything changed groups have developed, becoming families, who would do anything for each other to survive being captured or risk their lives to get just one bottle of water.

Right from the very start, I was completely gripped and drawn in by the characters, esp. Zach and Vivienne, although Hunter added a bit of light relief.  There was a real sense of belonging, although not everyone gets along, you could tell they really cared for each other.  I loved the twists that played out, and they kept me guessing what was in store next right up until the last page.  The world building was gradual, and slowly developed throughout the whole book, leaving me with no doubts by the end that I needed more.  The next book in the series can not come quick enough.
